We are about to embark on a series of sandpits, one in each case study location, open to the iPACT network of researchers. The aim of these will be to develop collaborative, infrastructure-related Pilot Study Line of Sight to explore and assess potential solutions aligned with community needs. We have funding for 5-10 of these Pilot Study feasibility projects at £50-100k each.
Each funding sandpit will be held over two days. They will bring together researchers and research users and beneficiaries from the iPACT network to develop potential solutions.
Apply for a place at a funding sandpit:
Places at each sandpit are limited. If you would like to apply for a place, please fill in this form https://forms.office.com/r/R9HUKWUExj and send us your mini CV by 16 November 2022. We will ask for your name, institution (if applicable) and contact details; a one-page mini resumé/CV; up to 150 words on why you want to come to a sandpit; and up to 250 words on the skills, experience and research area(s) you would bring. We intend to inform people about the allocation of sandpit places by 25 November 2022. If you apply to come to more than one sandpit, please give an order of preference (if applicable). Any one person will only be invited to attend one sandpit.
